Tony Strickland ad heats up Buck McKeon succession race
Former Republican state legislator Tony Strickland has launched the first radio ad in the race for an open Santa Clarita/Antelope Valley area congressional seat.
And the narrator of the ad is none other than retiring Rep. Howard P. “Buck” McKeon (R-Santa Clarita), the man Strickland and several others want to replace.
“Hi, I’m Congressman Buck McKeon, and I’ve been fighting liberals in Washington since before it was cool,” the ad begins.
McKeon continues, saying nice things about Strickland, a former state senator from neighboring Ventura County, whom he endorsed when he announced his retirement last month.
